can keep your plan. this is not a minor pledge. it's like the first president bush saying no new taxes in 1990 and 1988. he broke that pledge and he had the honesty to say he was. millions of people will lose it, at least 15 million including people in the small business community. >> we'll get to that. let's stay with the idea of the pledge. dr. emanuel "the wall street journal" reported that you were part of a debate in the white house about this claim. that you can keep your plan or your doctor is misleading. let me ask the question. on megan kelly's show this week, you blamed the insurance companies. >> if an insurance company decided they're going to change how they structure the plan, that's not the government, that's the business. >> but doctor, the obama care law demands they change their plans. >> first of all, i want to say the president takes very seriously what i -- it goes back to what i said and make sure we're consistent with this. when we passed the law, any law that existed before passed would be dprandfathered in unless lots of changes were made. we have to middle age

. it was central to passing the law. it is sort of like the first president bush saying no new taxes. he broke that pledge. at least he had the honesty to tell everybody he was breaking the pledge. the president pledged this and never admitted he was going to break it. there's millions of people going to lose it, at least 15 million, including people in the small business community. many small business people are going to lose their plans too. >> we're going to get to that. dr. emanuel, the "wall street journal" reported this weekend that you in fact were part of a debate inside the white house at the time about whether or not this claim you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor was misleading. this week -- >> i -- >> let me ask the question. then you can answer. -- whether it was misleading. on megyn kelly's show this week you blamed the insurance companies. >> if an insurance companies decides it's changing how it's going to structure its plan that is not the law doing it. that is the insurance company deciding for business reasons. >> but, doctor, the obama law demands that the insur

[ applause ] my first guest tonight has been asking questions of
whether groups are eligible for tax-exempt status or whether the website for his signature health care plan is sufficiently tested. sometimes they involve policy decisions like monitoring the telephone calls of our allies which has been going on shortly after the 9/11 attacks. the white house response to shrug off the question whether the president is out of the loop as more mudslinging from his critics. >> certainly true that you have conflate ad bunch of very disparate issues. >> republican critics are making the case though that the appears to be in the dark about some pretty significant stories that are swirling around this white house. >> well, republican critics say a lot of things, jim. >> reporter: republican national committee has certainly picked up the pattern, releasing a list of things that seemed to catch the president by surprise and calling it, the president, i'm sorry. martha, i've lost the -- martha: but it leads to sort of the next issue here. i'm thinking about even robert gibbs, the former close advisor of the president who has been critical in recent weeks about h
, taxes and other issues. martha: let's look at other numbers, because there are problem areas for you and areas where terry mcauliffe is quite frankly doing a lot better than you are. look at race among women. he has 50% of the vote. you're at 37. let's show the independent numbers which are also strongly for mcauliffe as well. he is at 46. you are at 31. these are very different numbers than what we see in the overall race. why do you think that is? >> first of all they're moving quickly our way. you know, i grow back to obamacare. independents agree with us. on tax differences between me and terry independents agree with us. that is moving our direction. women make 75% of the health care decisions in this country. more of them learn as they're hearing more and more every day that they don't get to pick their insurance, they don't get to pick their doctor. their doctors will be told how they can or can't treat their family member, women react to that much more. terry mcauliffe fully support that is bruer democrat-run medical system. i oppose it. that is a big attraction for women vot
growth and the rest of us who do work have to pay much higher taxes, which we are now. as a consequence, we can't afford the basic things in government that we need, like a decent national defense or expenditures on science and technology. the chinese seem to have a better space program than we do these days. >> you mention defense. we've got a graphic that shows how defense spending as a percentage of the tkpwopd has gone -- as a percent of the g.d.p. has gone down. in 2012 it was 12.3%. fast forward to the 2016 estimate and it looks like just 3.1%. what's the matter with spending less on our national defense, professor? >> let's look at what's happening in the middle east and asia. in the middle east we've abandoned egypt, for example, narrowing our focus. they justify this by saying we're shifting resources to asia. look at what has shifted to asia. not that much. now the japanese, the prime minister is saying that japan has to rearm to protect itself from china because they understand that just as the president abandoned morsi to the mob in the streets, when it really counts on thos
